Wayne Mardle has spoke about the current state of the Premier League after the last leg in Cardiff.

Mardle believes that it is one of the toughest to call in years and he singled Glen Durrant out in particular for praise after a great start to his Premier League campaign.

He also added that he firmly believes that it will be that close that lots of players may be facing elimination or playoffs going into Judgement Night.

“I’m looking at all the fixtures, week after week, it’s so hard to predict! It really is,” said Mardle to Sky Sports.

“You get the likes of Daryl Gurney who had played two, lost two, and not played well at all. Then he picked up a well-earned, well-deserved point against Gerwyn Price,

Michael van Gerwen is beatable. We knew that, but now we’ve seen it.”

“And don’t doubt Duzza! Glen Durrant couldn’t find a double or combination finish last week against Fallon Sherrock. In Cardiff, he was absolutely deadly against a legend of the game, Gary Anderson,

I just think it’s so, so tough to predict who gets eliminated, or who will make the play-offs.”

“Most of the players are going to finish around a similar points tally. Not all of them, but four of five of them may go into the penultimate week facing elimination, and the same when it comes to promotion,

This year’s competition could be one of the closest and hardest to call.”
